Meet The Groupies, Muses And Style Icons Of Music’s Golden Age

Vanessa Hollander and Wilson Philippe, the creative film and photography duo based in New York City, who already worked for clients like Vogue, Nylon and Urban Outfitters, made this little film for lifestyle magazine Dazed & Confused which reimagines the dreamy lives of the muses, style icons and artists that inspired the rock stars of days gone by.

“Staffed as fashion icons, musical muses and love interests, groupies have played a pivotal role shaping the industry,” Anna Cafolla writes. “Pamela Des Barres founded the groupie band, the GTOs, which was produced by Frank Zappa. The Rolling Stones wrote ‘Ruby Tuesday’ about a groupie Keith Richards once knew, and ‘Sweet’ Connie Hamzy was name-checked by Grand Funk Railroad.”

And she continues: “David Bowie hired Cherry Vanilla, self-proclaimed groupie, as his super publicist, and Tura Satana taught Elvis Presley some of his famous moves. They’ve inspired dozens of songs and broke, even more, hearts, and Midnight Rambler is re-imagining the stories of the groupies behind the feather boas and swathes of suede.” Everything was better in the old days.
